There are no athletics at Rush. However, there is a student government and other organizations to get involved in. Rush is very big on volunteering and every student must complete a certain amount of community service hours to graduate.

The professors of the MLS program are great. They are very knowledgable and passionate about this profession. The cirriculum could use some work. Some of the courses seem unecessary. The registration process can sometimes cause some issues.

The Rush MLS program is good. The workload can be a lot but is still manageable.
College Senior 2013-10-13T18:55:04Z
While the MLS program at Rush is good, it is very expensive. I also feel that the program might be a bit too long.

Blue Line and Pink Line located within walking distance of the Medical Center. Several taxis and buses also available.
College Senior 2013-09-24T04:50:03Z
Apartments available within walking distance of campus. However, quite expensive for campus housing.

Variety of restaurants, huge price range, and authentic ethnic food. Some places top end and more expensive, but you can find exactly what your looking for.

The drug scene at Rush University is very remote, most students have the intention to seriously study, it is not a party school.

Rush University is in the heart of Chicago, but safety may be an issue. Ten minutes away from campus is Millennium Park, walking distance to a variety of gourmet restaurants, and the Field Museum.

Most students are in medical related programs and will participate in clinical rotations in which you are performing all the duties expected of a professional in your field. Hands on training is essential for healthcare workers and therefore they make sure we get above and beyond the required number of hours and/or cases we need for whatever certification we will be eligible to test for. I think the university arranges clinical affiliates for students in most programs and therefore there is no difficulty finding them. Students may have to move out of state for at least one term, however. This is true in the perfusion program. We will be considered second year students in July when we start clinicals. It is a very demanding time, we may even be on-call during nights and weekends but it's "real world" experience so it's good.

The professors that teach the courses for our degree are very knowlegable and good at explaining things. Unfortunately, interdisciplinary education, or courses outside of our major, is not as good for courses such as ethics and healthcare in america. They try to relate their content to our major, but they don't understand what we do very well. Registration is usually pretty easy. We have a set curriculum for the two years we are enrolled, so we just pick the classes they tell us to. The system won't let you register for something you're not supposed to be in, even the wrong time slot if there's more than one section of the course you need, so it's hard to mess up. Workload was very manageable for what i expected from a master's program, although second quarter was tiring and challenging and i pretty much didn't go out the entire time.

I love the program, I think it is just the right level of difficulty. I put Cardiovascular Technician as my major because they didn't have my actual major listed, which is an M.S. in Perfusion Technology. When I'm done I will be eligible to take the board exams to become a perfusionist, which is the person who runs the heart and lung machine during open heart surgery and is responsible for blood management and other cardiovascular assist devices. Our professors are very knowledgable and most of our classes are very small. There are 12 of us in the program so there is plenty of opportunity for one on one time with the faculty, although lab time can be a little crowded and we don't get as much practice on the pumps and simulators as we would like, although we will have plenty of hands on experience when we go on clinical rotations. We are getting a very solid theoretical foundation in physiology, pharmacology, pathology, and research before moving on to clinicals. We have many opportunities to participate in professional conferences and meetings which are good for networking with future employers.

Students living on campus at Rush or anywhere in chicago have access to some of the best night life, sports teams, museums and restaurants in the country. Rush itself is close to both the blue and pink lines and the students get free CTA passes so its easy to get around the city. There are tons of students in Chicago and Rush students in particular are very well respected for their academic backgrounds. Take a trip to the Field Museum, it's huge and you can easily spend all day there exploring natural history from all over the world.

The students are friendly and plan party's ahead of time and notify everyone.
College Junior 2013-04-08T01:12:21Z
There are city buses that run past the university all the time.

I came to Auburn University because it has an architecture program, the campus is great, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class.

Problem with communication (notification of interview) but otherwise I am impressed

There are plenty of train and bus services to the campus.

Unaware that there was one back in the early '80's, the times have may changed.

When I was in nursing school we did not have this luxury!!
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-07T22:18:09Z
There are plenty of neighborhoods close to campus that have great offerings, some reasonable and others very pricey.

Many nurses that I know did not have such a rewarding and intense clinical experience as I did; being a student in such a large hospital system provided an amazing experience that prepared me for the "real world" when I graduated. The Instructors were very current and continued to practice nursing while providing instruction to students.

It was within walking distance to some of the best Italian establishments in Chicago or a short drive downtown.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-07T21:59:11Z
When I attended it appeared that all the students who received "free tuition" and actually lived within a short driving distance lived on campus in the city of Chicago. Others, like myself commuted an hour or more to attend college because we lived in the suburbs. Not a very fair policy, in my opinion.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
